Prescription drugs can offer many benefits to patients. These drugs keep our hearts beating, lower our blood pressure, offer pain relief, and treat our depression. In many cases, prescription drugs are life-saving to patients who use them. Yet, all drugs have side effects. In most cases, these effects are minor or are easily treated with a change in medication or dosage adjustment.
Unfortunately, some prescription drugs come with life-altering side-effects that are not so easily remedied. Sadly, many drug companies may not clearly warn people about these effects. People sometimes suffer in silence for years, unaware that the drug they are taking to cure one illness is causing another malady with painful symptoms.

Xarelto Linked to Severe and Uncontrollable Bleeding
Xarelto is a blood thinner that may also lead to severe and uncontrollable bleeding in some patients. The drug is known to increase the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, kidney bleeding, brain hemorrhage and sometime death. The makers of Xarelto claim that regular blood monitoring and dietary restrictions are not needed. The makers of Xarelto fail to inform people that there is no specific antidote currently approved that would reverse the uncontrollable bleeding once it starts. Unfortunately, not all people who have taken the drug are aware of these risks.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious bleeding event as a result of taking this drug, you should seek the help of a skilled lawyer who can help you receive compensation for missed time at work, medical bills, and pain and suffering caused as a result of these serious side-effects.

Risperdal, Gynecomastia, and Other Side Effects
Risperdal is used to treat a range of mood disorders including schizophrenia, bipolar, and certain symptoms of autism. While Risperdal is an F.D.A. approved antipsychotic, it is known to have a variety of severe side-effects.
One of the side-effects is Gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a condition in boys and men that results in the enlargement of the breast tissue. While the condition is not life-threatening, it can be difficult to cope with. Many men and adolescents with the condition seek out surgical correction. Boys who take Risperdal are more likely to develop Gynecomastia as a result of taking the drug. Risperdal can also affect an individual’s blood sugar level, which can lead to diabetes. Individuals taking Risperdal often experience weight gain, which can worsen other conditions. Children who take Risperdal are more prone to developing some of the more serious side-effects.

Plavix and Pradaxa: Dangerous Blood Thinners
Recent F.D.A. research found that patients taking Plavix and Pradaxa are at a greater risk of gastrointestinal bleeding when they take these drugs. While the drugs were found to be effective in reducing the patients’ risk of stroke, patients were found to be more susceptible to side-effects such as gastrointestinal bleeding, stomach bleeding, and in some cases, brain hemorrhage and death.
Unfortunately, the makers of these drugs did not always adequately inform patients about these risk factors. Blood thinners prevent clots, but they also come with the risk of severe bleeding.
If you or a loved one has suffered these side-effects, you may wish to seek the advice of Morris Bart, L.L.C. Attorneys at Law. For help, call the attorneys at Morris Bart, 1-800-537-8185.
Lipitor May Increase Diabetes Risk
Lipitor is used to treat high cholesterol by lowering bad cholesterol and raising good cholesterol levels. It also can help prevent heart-attacks.
Unfortunately, the drug places patients at a greater risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Patients who already have diabetes may experience worsening symptoms as a result of taking Lipitor. In 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning that Lipitor could elevate blood sugar and increase the risk that patients would develop type-2 diabetes. The F.D.A. required the drug company to warn patients about this risk. Unfortunately, many patients had already been taking the drug prior to these warnings, and had already developed symptoms.
If you or a loved one is suffering from Type 2 diabetes and took Lipitor, you may be eligible to receive compensation through a lawsuit. Morris Bart, L.L.C. Attorneys at Law will review your case and determine the best course of action for you and your loved ones. For help, call the attorney’s at Morris Bart, 1-800-537-8185.
Actos and Bladder Cancer Risk
While Actos carried a warning that it may lead to a greater risk of bladder cancer, research has shown that the bladder cancer risk may be more deadly and serious than previously thought.
Actos is used to treat type-2 diabetes. Researchers found that the use of Actos for more than two years, doubles a person’s risk of bladder cancer. While bladder cancer is still relatively rare, many patients who initially took the drug may not have been aware of the risk factors.
If you or a loved one developed bladder cancer as a result of taking Actos, you may be entitled under the law to seek compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering. If you are suffering from bladder cancer and were prescribed Actos, Morris Bart, L.L.C. Attorneys at Law will take the time to review your case to determine a legal course of action for you and your loved ones. For help, call the attorney’s at Morris Bart, 1-800-537-8185.
Testosterone Therapy and the Risk of Heart Attack, Stroke, and Blood Clots
Testosterone therapy was approved to treat hypogonadism, a drastic hormonal decline. There are many different brands of testosterone therapy which are commonly used, including Androgel, Androderm, Axiron, Depo Testosterone, Fortesta, Striant, Testim, and Testopel.
Recent studies have found that the drug may double the risk of heart attack and stroke in some men over 65 years of age. Stroke and heart attacks can lead to death or serious effects including paralysis, vision problems, memory loss, speech or language problems, and other difficulties. Studies also show that the risk of heart attack and stroke triples in men under 65 years of age if they had prior heart problems.
If you or a loved one has suffered from a cardiac event, stroke, or blood clots and were not warned about the potential risk testosterone therapy posed in causing these symptoms, call the attorneys at Morris Bart today. Many people saw advertisements stating that testosterone therapy was the solution to their fatigue, loss of energy, and low libido. Sadly, other safer drugs are on the market to treat these symptoms.
Morris Bart, L.L.C. Attorneys at Law helps patients file lawsuits against the makers of testosterone therapy for injuries, loss of quality of life, medical expenses, lost earnings, and other issues faced as a result of taking these drugs. For help, call the attorneys at Morris Bart, 1-800-537-8185.
Byetta and Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Cancer
Byetta is a drug taken by injection to treat diabetes. The drug is not insulin, but it helps control blood sugar like insulin injections.
Unfortunately, this drug has been linked to an increased risk of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. Pancreatitis can lead to hospitalization, and in 10 to 30 percent of cases, death. Research has shown that patients are six times more likely to develop pancreatitis when they take Byetta. Individuals who used Byetta were also three times more likely to develop pancreatic cancer. The mortality rate of pancreatic cancer is high, with 95 percent of patients dying from the disease. Byetta was also linked to the development of thyroid cancer.
People who have taken Byetta and who suffer from these conditions should contact a personal injury lawyer. Morris Bart, L.L.C. Attorneys at Law can help review your case and help you and your loved ones seek justice for side-effects of Byetta. For help, call the attorney’s at Morris Bart, 1-800-537-8185.
Januvia and Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Cancer
Januvia is a popular type-2 diabetes treatment, but researchers have found that these drugs may be responsible for increased risk of pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis. While this drug is F.D.A. approved, the F.D.A. has issued warnings about the risk of the drug to patients. Both pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer are potentially dangerous and deadly conditions. Studies have shown the risk of developing pancreatic cancer is doubled by taking these drugs. The risk of developing cancer increases the longer someone takes Januvia.
If you or a loved one has taken Januvia and who have suffered or are suffering from pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer, you should seek the counsel of a skilled and experienced lawyer who can determine whether you are entitled to receive compensation for these side-effects.
